    cups whole milk

    tablespoons flour

  • 1/4

    pound crumbled blue cheese, plus 1/4 cup for garnishing

  • 2

    tablespoons finely chopped fresh chives

  • Potato Chips:*

  • 4

  • Salt

Directions

SAUCE Place the milk in a small saucepan and bring to a simmer over low heat. Heat the butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add the onion and cook until soft. Stir in the flour and cook for 1 minute. Slowly whisk in the warm milk, and continue whisking until thickened, season with the salt and cayenne pepper. Continue cooking for 5 minutes, whisking occasionally. Remove from the heat and stir in the cheese. If the sauce is too thick, thin with a little extra milk. CHIPS Place the potato slices on a baking sheet between layers of paper towels to make sure they are very dry before frying. Heat oil in a large saucepan until the temperature of the oil reaches 375° on a deep fat thermometer. Fry the potatoes in small batches until golden brown on both sides, turning once. Remove with a slotted spoon and place on a brown paper bag or another baking sheet lined with paper towels to drain and season with salt immediately. To Serve: Pour the sauce into a bowl and top with more crumbled blue cheese and the chopped chives. Place the bowl in the center of a large platter and place the potato chips around the bowl. *If you don't want to make homemade potato chips, you can substitute your favorite brand. Put them on a large baking sheet in a single layer and heat for 5 minutes in a preheated 350°oven.
